Why employ a military spouse?

Military spouses are often overlooked or discriminated against as a pool of workers. But the truth is they can provide skills, experience, value and diversity that businesses should consider when hiring.

They are: highly flexible and adaptable

Military life includes regular moves, sometimes overseas. It is the military spouse who packs up the household, organising new schools, adapts to the new environment, new culture and new employment opportunities as well as settling the family.

They are already flexible, patient and resilient because they have had to be.

They are: skilled and highly educated

The CV belies their true skill set. Short-term jobs or gaps due to military moves give the wrong impression. The reality is they have learnt to pick up where they have left off in each job, they have learned to re-network in each and every new posting and new community therefore developing a broad and diverse skill set.

50% of military spouses are educated to degree level or above and yet 30% cannot find work. These are the men and women who have been the constant at home while their partner has prolonged absences. They have kept the family together, managed the finances, held down a job all the while dealing with the absence of their partner or uncertainty of where or when they will need to relocate.

Companies who value hard work, creativity, passion and resilience do not need to look much further than a military spouse.

RFS was...a platform for spouses who understood my struggles and my challenges. It felt like I came to them in pieces, deflated and very defeated and they (RFS) pieced me back together.

The competency amongst the military spouse community is unbelievably good and the fact all our candidates were happy with remote working made this ideal for us as a small business.
